[REBOL] Can't find a recent post about archiving Outlook Express emails to text

From: gerardcote::sympatico::ca at: 3-Oct-2002 10:41

Hi List, sorry for the disturbance but I am ready to try the REBOL email client from Phil B. and I would like to convert all my past emails that were received with Outlook Express to simple text files. so I could be able to grab the interesting contents I selected to get them back with the new reader. I remember having seen - in the last 3 months or so some post about the way to do it - but after some thorough search in all the available archives of this ML, I couldn't anything. Can someone help me remember from who was this HOW-TO for me to look at it another time ? A simple ref. to the article explaining the how-to will be sufficient too. I thought it could be Brett or Jason but seemed to found nothing related to this subject on their sites either. May be I become too old ... as everybody gets someday !!! Thanks, Gerard P.S. Seems to me it was done by selecting the old emails and resending them - so they can be received as attachments that can then be found separately on disk - but I am not sure if there is a shorter way to do it since I have a big LOT of them to manage ( in the many thousands) ... many of them are not REBOL related at all but I want to keep and put them on CD-ROMs. And for those that want to get some various SPAM samples, I have TONs of them under my HANDs. I just have to filter them and resend all to anyone interested. May be long however ...
